Podiatry (Chiropody)

What is Podiatry (Chiropody)?

The assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of problems of the feet, ankles and lower limbs. Podiatrists undertake the same work as Chiropodists but often have additional training in the management of more complex foot and ankle conditions and are able to undertake biomechanical assessment.
